As recommended by Rachel Lampard of the Joint Public Issues Team, How to Be a Craftivist is a manifesto for quiet activism: how to tackle issues not with shouting and aggression but with gentle protest, using the process of ‘making’ to engage thoughtfully in the issues we are about, to influence and effect change.

Sarah Corbett, professional campaigner and founder of the Craftivist Collective, shares her journey to respectful activism: using craft to contemplate global issues, provoke thought and start conversations rather than arguments.

Interwoven with Sarah’s personal stories are ideas and suggestions for every novice craftivist. Gentleness can be a great strength, and quiet action can sometimes speak as powerfully amid the noise as the loudest voice.

And if we want a world that is beautiful, kind and fair… shouldn’t our activism be beautiful, kind and fair?
